Hi Lovelies!

Hope you are all managing to get over the dreaded 'Monday Blues', well I hope my latest addition to the blog would help you get over it some.

So, I've always wanted to get some sort of series going on my blog and the other day it came to me! Most times (read as: "When I remember"), I share my latest manicure on my instagram page (Username: BeautyInLagos) which I tag #NOTD = Nail Of The Day. So I thought why not also post it on the blog too, but add a couple more pictures and details. So I present to you: MANICURE MONDAYS (MMs for short). On Mondays expect to see my latest manicure on the blog.

So, you guys that follow BeautyInLagos (BiL) on twitter will know that on Friday I tweeted I'll be hosting a Giveaway on here to celebrate both the blog's birthday and mine. My birthday's on Thursday, the 31st, and I would love to give something to one of you guys! Initially, I didn't want to say what the rules were, because I wanted to capture the true Beauty-Lovers that come back time after time to check for new posts. But I am aware that although all of you read my posts, not all of you are following and in order for me to pick a winner, you have to be following. So please make sure you're following BiL with GoogleFriendConnect (you can follow using your twitter account), like the Facebook page and follow on Twitter to be in with a chance of winning the Anniversary GoodyBag! If you haven't got all three, just follow with whichever you've got. (Hint: the more ways you follow, the higher your chances of winning)

I'll provide more details during the actual giveaway! So January31st! See ya!!
